History

The former banner of Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg founded "The Facebook" in February 2004 while attending Harvard University.[1] "The" was dropped from its name when the company purchased the facebook.com domain name in 2005.[9] Initially, membership was restricted to students of Harvard College, but by the end of the first month, more than half of the undergraduate population at Harvard were registered on the service.[10] At that time, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes joined Zuckerberg to help promote the website. Facebook soon expanded to Stanford, Columbia, and Yale.[11] This expansion continued in April when it expanded to MIT, Boston University, Boston College, Northeastern University, and all Ivy League schools within two months.[11] At the end of the school year, Zuckerberg and Moskovitz moved to Palo Alto, California with Andrew McCollum, who had a summer internship at Electronic Arts.[11] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 450 × 600 pixel Image in higher resolution (453 × 604 pixel, file size: 52 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File links The following pages on the English Wikipedia link to this file (pages on other projects are not listed): Facebook ...

Zuckerberg launched the high school iteration of Facebook on September 2, 2005, calling it the next logical thing to do.[12] Initially, the high school networks required an invitation to join.[12] Within fifteen days, high school networks did not require a password; the only requirement was a Facebook account.[12] By the end of the year, more than 2,000 colleges and over 25,000 high schools throughout seven countries including the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom had networks on Facebook.[13][14] Facebook had expanded membership eligibility to employees of ten preselected companies by April 26, 2006, including Amazon.com, Apple Inc., and Microsoft.[15] Facebook finally became open to everyone on September 11, 2006, with the only requirements being a valid email address and a minimum age of 13.[16][17][18] is the 245th day of the year (246th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Facebook received its first investment of $500,000 in June 2004 from PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel in an angel round.[19] This was followed a year later by $12.8 million in venture capital from Accel Partners, and then $25 million more from Greylock Partners and Meritech Capital Partners.[20][21] Microsoft approached Facebook in September 2007, proposing an investment in return for a 5% stake in the company. Microsoft would pay an estimated $300 – $500 million for the share.[22] Microsoft announced on October 24, 2007 that it had bought a 1.6% share of Facebook for $246 million.[23][24][25][26] The blog All Things Digital reported that Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing invested $60 million in Facebook on November 30, 2007.[27] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 748 × 600 pixelsFull resolution (2241 × 1797 pixel, file size: 1. ...

BusinessWeek reported on March 28, 2006 that a potential acquisition of the website was under negotiation. Facebook reportedly declined an offer of $750 million, and it was rumored that the asking price rose as high as $2 billion.[28] With the sale of social networking website MySpace to News Corp, rumors surfaced about the possible sale of Facebook to a larger media company.[29] Zuckerberg, the owner of Facebook, had already said that he did not want to sell the company and denied rumors to the contrary.[30] In late September, serious talks between Facebook and Yahoo! took place concerning acquisition of the social network, with prices reaching as high as $1 billion.[31] After Google purchased video-sharing website YouTube, rumors circulated that Google had offered $2.3 billion to outbid Yahoo!.[32] Peter Thiel, a board member of Facebook, indicated that Facebook's internal valuation is around $8 billion based on their projected revenues of $1 billion by 2015, comparable to that of Viacom's MTV brand and based on shared target demographic audience.[33] Other companies, including Google, had also expressed interest in buying a portion of Facebook, but an outright sale of Facebook is unlikely according to founder Mark Zuckerberg, as he would like to keep it independent.[34] "We're not really looking to sell the company," says Zuckerberg. "We're not looking to IPO anytime soon.

Features

Main article: Facebook features

When Facebook launched, it included several features that still exist today on the website. They include the Wall, which is a space on each user's profile page that allows friends to post messages for the user to see[42], Pokes, which allows users to send a virtual "poke" to each other,[43] Photos, where users can upload albums and photos,[44] and status, which allows users to inform their friends of their current whereabouts and actions.[45] Facebook features are provided by the online social networking service Facebook to its users. ...

The Facebook Wall allows users to post messages on the profile of their friends.[46] A user's wall, dependent on privacy settings, is visible to anyone who is able to see that user's profile. In July 2007, Facebook began allowing users to post attachments to the wall, whereas the wall was previously limited to textual content only.[47]


Over time, Facebook has added several new features to its website. On September 6, 2006, a News Feed was announced, which appears on every user's homepage and highlights information including profile changes, upcoming events, and birthdays, related to the user's friends.[48] Initially, the News Feed caused some dissatisfaction among Facebook users: some complained that the News Feed was too cluttered and was full of undesired information, while others were concerned that the News Feed made it too easy for other people to track down individual activities (like changes in relationship status, events, and conversations with other users).[49] In response to this dissatisfaction, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, issued an apology for the site's failure to include appropriate customizable privacy features.[50] Since then, users have been able to control what types of information are shared automatically with friends.[50] Users are now able to prevent friends from seeing updates about different types of activities, including profile changes, wall posts, and newly added friends.[50] is the 249th day of the year (250th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

One of the most popular applications on Facebook is the Photos application, where users can upload albums and photos.[51] Facebook allows users to upload an unlimited number of photos, compared to other image hosting services, such as Photobucket and Flickr, which apply limits to the number of photos that a user is allowed to upload. However, users are limited to uploading up to 60 photos per album. Privacy settings can be set for each individual album, limiting the groups of users that can see an album. For example, the privacy of an album can be set so that only the user's friends can see the album, while the privacy of another album can be set so that all Facebook users can see it. Another feature of the Photos applications is the ability to "tag" users in a photo. For instance, if a photo contains a user's friend, then the user can tag the friend in the photo. This sends a notification to the friend that they have been tagged, and provides them a link to see the photo.[52] Facebook features are provided by the online social networking service Facebook to its users. ...

Facebook launched Gifts on February 8, 2007, which allowed users to send virtual gifts to their friends and appeared on the recipient's profile. The gifts cost US$1.00 each to purchase, and a personalized message can be attached to each gift.[54][55] On May 14, 2007, Facebook launched the Marketplace application, allowing users to post free classified ads on the website.[56] The Marketplace has been compared to Craigslist by CNET, which points out that the major difference between the two online services is that listings posted by a user on Facebook Marketplace are only seen by users that are in the same network as that user, whereas listings posted on Craigslist can be seen by anyone online.[57] Facebook features are provided by the online social networking service Facebook to its users. ... is the 39th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Platform

Facebook launched the Facebook Platform on May 24, 2007, providing a framework for software developers to create applications that interact with core Facebook features.[61][62][62] A markup language was also introduced, called Facebook markup language, which was used primarily to customize the "look and feel" of applications that developers created. This enabled Facebook itself to launch several new applications that tightly integrated with the Facebook system.[61][62] These include the Gifts application, which allows users to send virtual gifts to each other, the Marketplace, allowing users to post free classified ads, Events, which gives users a method of informing their friends about upcoming events, and Video, an application that allows users to share homemade videos with one another.[63][64][65] is the 144th day of the year (145th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Applications that have been created include chess and Scrabble, which allow users to play games against their friends.[66][67] The games played are asynchronous, meaning that when a user makes a move in a game, it is saved on the server, allowing the next move to be made at any time in the future rather than immediately after the previous move.[68] Within a few months of launching the Facebook Platform, issues arose regarding "application spam", which involves Facebook applications "spamming" users to request that the application be installed.[69] Application spam has been considered one of the possible causes to the drop in visitors to Facebook starting from the beginning of 2008, when the website's growth had fallen from December 2007 to January 2008, its first drop since the website first launched.[70] This article is about the Western board game. ...

Controversy

Main article: Criticism of Facebook

Due to the website's popularity, it has been involved in some controversy since it was founded. In October 2005, the University of New Mexico blocked access to Facebook from its campus computers and networks.[71] It cited a violation of the university's Acceptable Use Policy for abusing computer resources as the reason, stating that the website forces use of the university's credentials for non-university business. They later unblocked Facebook after the website rectified the situation.[72] The Ontario government also blocked access to Facebook for its employees in May 2007, stating that the website is "not directly related to the workplace" so they were "restricting access to it".[73] Facebooks growth as an internet social networking site has met criticism, on a range of issues including the Privacy of users and un-moderated content effecting advertising. ...

The Facebook group dedicated to Stefanie Rengel

A notable ancillary effect of social networking websites like Facebook is the ability for participants to mourn publicly for a deceased individual. On January 1, 2008, a memorial group on Facebook posted the identity of murdered Toronto teenager Stefanie Rengel, whose family had not yet given the Toronto Police Service their consent to release her name to the media.[74] While police and Facebook staff attempted to comply with the privacy regulations by deleting such posts, they noted that it was difficult to effectively police the individual users who repeatedly republished the deleted information.[75] is the 1st day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Anno Domini (or common era), in accordance to the Gregorian calendar. ...

Facebook is often compared to MySpace by the media, such as The New York Times, but one significant difference between the two websites is the level of customization.[76] MySpace allows users to decorate their profiles using HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) while Facebook only allows plain text.[77] However, a number of users have customized their profiles by using hacks. For example, on February 24, 2006, users exploited a cross-site scripting vulnerability on a profile page and created a fast-spreading worm, which loaded a custom CSS file on infected profiles that made them look like MySpace profiles.[78] MySpace is a social networking website offering an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, music, and videos. ...

Due to the open nature of Facebook, several countries have banned access to it, including Syria, Burma, Bhutan, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Iran.[79][80] The Syrian government cited that the ban was on the premise that the website promoted attacks on the authorities.[79][81][82] The Syrian government also feared Israeli infiltration of Syrian social networks on the website. Facebook was used as a tool to criticize the Syrian government by its citizens, and public criticism of the Syrian government is punishable by imprisonment.[79] In the UAE, Facebook was banned because the website was considered to assist in online dating, which was banned under the government's new internet policy.[80] In Iran, Facebook was banned because of fears of opposition movements organizing using the website.[82]


Beacon

Main article: Facebook Beacon

Facebook announced Facebook Beacon on November 7, 2007, a marketing initiative which includes a system for websites to allow users to share chosen information about their activities on these websites with their Facebook friends.[83] With respect to privacy, Facebook states that "no personally identifiable information is shared with an advertiser in creating a Social Ad," and that "Facebook users will only see Social Ads to the extent their friends are sharing information with them".[84] After Facebook was criticized for collecting more information on users for advertisers than was previously stated, Mark Zuckerberg publicly apologized for the way that Facebook launched the Beacon system, saying "The problem with our initial approach of making it an opt-out system instead of opt-in was that if someone forgot to decline to share something, Beacon still went ahead and shared it with their friends."[85][86] is the 311th day of the year (312th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

ConnectU

Divya Narendra, Cameron Winklevoss, and Tyler Winklevoss, the owners of the social networking website HarvardConnection, changed its name to ConnectU in September 2004 and filed a lawsuit against Facebook, alleging that Zuckerberg had illegally used source code intended for the website they asked him to build for them.[87][88] Facebook later requested that the court case that ConnectU filed against Facebook be dismissed, citing that ConnectU's "broad brush allegations are unsupported by evidence." The case was dismissed by a Boston district judge.[89] ConnectU then filed another lawsuit against Facebook on March 11, 2008, continuing the case.[90] ConnectU, originally named HarvardConnection, was founded in December 2002 by Harvard University classmates Divya Narendra, Cameron Winklevoss, and Tyler Winklevoss. ...

Privacy

There have been concerns expressed regarding the use of Facebook as a means of surveillance and data mining.[91] Theories have been written about the possible misuse of Facebook, and privacy proponents have criticized the site's current privacy agreement.[92] The policy states "We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services and other users of Facebook, to supplement your profile." Facebook has assured users that the next privacy policy will not include the clause about information collection, and has denied that any data mining is being done "for the CIA or any other group."[93] However, the possibility of data mining by private individuals unaffiliated with Facebook remains open, as evidenced by the fact that two MIT students were able to download over 70,000 Facebook profiles from four schools (MIT, NYU, the University of Oklahoma, and Harvard) using an automated script, as part of a research project on Facebook privacy published on December 14, 2005.[94] A second clause that received criticism regards Facebook's right to sell users' data to private companies, stating "We may share your information with third parties, including responsible companies with which we have a relationship." This concern has also been addressed by spokesman Chris Hughes who said "Simply put, we have never provided our users' information to third party companies, nor do we intend to."[95] Data mining is the principle of sorting through large amounts of data and picking out relevant information. ... A privacy policy is a disclaimer placed on a website informing users about how the website deals with a users personal information. ...

Chris Hughes (born on November 26, 1983) co-founded the online social directory, Facebook, in 2004 with Harvard roommates Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz. ...


Concerns have been raised regarding the difficulty of deleting user accounts on the website. Previously, Facebook only allowed users to "deactivate" their accounts. This meant that their profile was no longer visible on the website, but any information that the user had entered into the website and on their profile still existed on the website's servers. This had concerned users who wished to permanently remove their account, citing reasons such as an overly embarrassing profile that may affect a future employer's decision in whether or not to hire someone based on what a user's online profile reveals.[96] As of February 29, 2008, Facebook has changed its account deletion policies, allowing users to contact Facebook directly to request that a user account be permanently deleted from the website.[97] In information technology, a server is an application or device that performs services for connected clients as part of a client-server architecture. ... February 29 is a day added into a leap year of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Anno Domini (or common era), in accordance to the Gregorian calendar. ...
